OCT Retinal Exam

An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. We can see the retina’s distinctive layers which allows us to map and measure thickness. This exam also provides treatment guidance for glaucoma and other diseases of the retina which include age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic eye diseases.

Visual Field Testing

Visual field testing measures how much vision you have in either eye, and how much vision loss may have occurred over time. This test can determine if you have blind spots (scotoma) in your vision and where they are. A scotoma’s size and shape can show how eye disease or a brain disorder is affecting your vision. If you have glaucoma, this test helps to show any possible peripheral vision loss.
